Ume (Plum Blossom) Haiku

the Past is passed
the Future, still yet to be
distant – beyond imagining
Now, is only this moment…

plum blossoms fall
through wavering shade –
gum tree leaves

lovers’ shadows
whispering in the dark –
plum blossom moon

embroidered
on the new fallen snow –
plum blossom shade

such stillness!
even the plum blossoms
refuse to budge

at dawn
plum blossom moon continues
blooming

the wind has died
yet blossoms fall – through silence
a sparrow flutters
